This is a bench made for a friend who wanted very sturdy book storage that would serve double duty as a bench. The design was inspired by an article on page 32 of this magazine. It was a real learning experience and I am very proud of it. I must recommend General Finishes Candlelight Oil Based Stain.
If you want to read more about making this bench you can go to the 2 part blog.
If you look closely at the pictures of the bench top you can see two off-center mortise and tenons with wedges.
